Priced at $50 with Amazon discounts, the RAVPower power adapter features dual USB-C ports and a 90W total output that’s able to charge all of Apple’s devices, from MacBooks to iPads.
Design wise, the Wall Charger is a simple square shape that measures in at 2.5 inches by 2.5 inches, with a thickness that’s just over an inch, so it’s smaller and lighter than the original 87W power adapter that comes with a 15-inch MacBook Pro.
GaN technology keeps it more compact than a traditional charger, making it ideal for travel thanks to both the size and the double ports. An LED light displays the charging status of the power adapter.
At 90W, the RAVPower Wall Charger is able to charge up to the 15-inch MacBook Pro at full speed, and while it’s less power than the 96W power adapter that ships with the 16-inch MacBook Pro, it will still charge, but a bit slower. It is able to charge a 15-inch MacBook in just over two hours, or a 13-inch MacBook Pro in under two hours.
With two ports, it’s able to charge multiple devices at one time. Charging a single device you can get the full 90W, and with multiple devices, the power is split between them depending on the power needs of what you’re charging. Two-port outputs for the charger are outlined below:
- Laptop + Laptop: 45W+ 45W
- Laptop + Phone: 60W + 30W
- Laptop + iPad 2017/2018/2019: 45W +30W
- Laptop + Tablet (except iPad 2017/2018/2019): 60W +30W
If you have a MacBook Air or an iPad Pro, you can charge both models at full speed while also fast charging an iPhone using a Lightning to USB-C cable. Fast charging provides 50 percent battery life in approximately 30 minutes.
According to RAVPower, the power adapter features safe charging technology with protections from overcurrent, overdischarge, short circuiting, and high temperatures.
